Assessment and Selection of Coaches and Athletes

Sport Psychology

Sports organizations take great risk when selecting executives, coaches and athletes. Mistakes at the highest levels create great financial, reputational and other costs to organizations and teams. At the elite levels of performance, sports organizations are usually very effective in screening candidates for raw skill or technical ability. However, they are often ineffective at screening for character, cultural fit, team player mentality and leadership skills. The Tobin Company works with sports organizations to tailor interviews, background research and assessments to ensure key information is available to make the best decisions about athletes, coaches, executives and other key personnel. We focus on traits of individual and organizational excellence including character, work ethic, emotional intelligence, team player mentality and cultural fit.
